Les Sentiers

Parallels Screens

Each year, FIDMARSEILLE and Fotokino travel on this screen meant for viewers of all ages, both children and adults. On these Paths (Sentiers), eyes share the discovery of generous films and sensitive works whose imaginary worlds and purposes can challenge each and every one of us.

This year, The Jungle Book brings us together: a story lingering in our childhood memories, whether we read the book by Rudyard Kipling, or we discovered the adaptation by Disney in 1967. But twenty-five years before this worldwide hit, Zoltan Korda already immersed us in a flamboyant Technicolor jungle where the phantasmagoria of the sets was confronted with the naturalism of the animal realm. Both poetic and magical, with Sabu, a child star discovered a few years earlier in Elephant boy (1936) by Robert Flaherty and The Thief of Bagdad (1940) by Michael Powell, this work still resonates today, in these times of environmental changes where the struggle between nature and mankind remains unsolved.

Creative workshops will be organised alongside the screenings: through thematic and technical approaches, they will give an opportunity for children to become familiar with the film language as well as discover their own critical eye.

Vincent Tuset-Anrès, Fotokino.

Les Sentiers Expanded

A mother decides to take her daughter on a journey through Aleppo where she was born and raised. Personal stories are woven into those of the country. Meetings with ancestors, by way of the family home, make the telling of this story both light and shocking at the same time. Those traces of the past are ruins today: dilapidated buildings, ravaged landscapes, remnants of a personal story rich with memories.  Filmed by the famous director of photography, Caroline Champetier, the recent history of contemporary Syria rises up out of these images of the all too recent past. This is reflected in a title card at the beginning of the film: “We never thought this would be our last journey”.            (FM)
